I am 15 years old and I've been kneeboarding since I was three, back then I was so light that my dad just set me on the kneeboard and I floated around until the boat started. I can do alot of different tricks and my best would probably be a back flip, but I think I could do a mobius(backflip 180). the only problem is that I have no idea how to do it. I'm not sure if you turn first then flip, or do it at the same time or what. thats where u guys come in. I was wandering if anyone could either tell me how or direct me to a site with instructions. Thanks a lot

Do you mean a backflip or a backroll?

A backroll <BR> <BR>(Message edited by hyperlite89 on June 01, 2005)

Well, the type of trick you want to do depends upon when you do the 180. If you throw a backroll first and then the 180, that's called a backroll to revert. Go here for instruction: <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.kneeboardplanet.com/instruction/adv/brrevert.html" target="_blank">http://www.kneeboardplanet.com/instruction/adv/brrevert.html</a> <BR> <BR>The video clip is a little old since I let go with my outside hand now. It's a little harder to hold on with one hand; however, you may find that you end up less twisted when landing. <BR> <BR>If you throw a 180 before the backroll, that's called an invert. Go here for that instruction: <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.kneeboardplanet.com/instruction/adv/invert.html" target="_blank">http://www.kneeboardplanet.com/instruction/adv/invert.html</a> <BR> <BR>A Mobius(aka a Mobe) is actually any flip with a 360 degree spin thrown in, not just a 180. The Roadkill( <a href="http://www.kneeboardplanet.com/instruction/adv/roadkill.html" target="_blank">http://www.kneeboardplanet.com/instruction/adv/roadkill.html</a>) is currently the only thing close. You spin 360, but there is no actual handle pass. There are a few of us determined to successfully complete a Mobe this season. <BR> <BR>Good luck<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>
